Lesbos And The Far Right: A Look By Newsy And Lighthouse Reports
Hatred spreads quickly and can be just as dangerous as any virus. In this joint project between our partners, Newsy, and Lighthouse Reports, groups capitalizing on anti-refugee clashes on Greek islands are noted to have come from many different parts of Europe. What is their ultimate goal? Strengthen the far right in their home countries — everywhere from France to Sweden. Even worse, the global pandemic has only encouraged many of these people, as they can scapegoat migrants and refugees for the spread of COVID-19.
